We're not even making this shit up.

What's that? A large, furry, aggressive animal has just interrupted your party? BEAR LORE TIME!

Roll a Nature check.

  • DC15: Cave bears live in caves.
  • DC20: Dire bears like to attack with their natural weapons.

For the same DC regarding manticores, you get to know it has 3 rows of teeth and that it can speak common and that it can be tricked easily.

The Bear Lore meme started right when the 4th edition core books were leaked online. After paging through them, someone found a chart for "bear lore" which had dc checks to find out amazingly stupid things about bears. Someone posted this on /tg/ and there were many lulz to be had as people continued to talk about what else there is to learn about bears, among other things. The meme originated here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/1839136/

Alternatively, a Religion check on bears provides the following:

  • DC15: Bears do not attend any continuous services of worship. They are ready to kill at all hours of the week.
  • DC20: They mysteriously vanish every winter, perhaps to give reverence to their perverse fertility goddess while gorging on the souls of men lost to famine.
  • DC25: Bear society has no visibly ordained clerics.
  • DC35: SHIT NEVERMIND THEY HAVE THEM, RUN.
